Leyburn children to attend Tour de Yorkshire announcement day

Leyburn schoolchildren will attend an event unveiling the start and finish locations for next year’s Tour de Yorkshire.

The Leyburn Primary School youngsters were filmed at Leyburn’s Wensleydale Railway Station last week.

Welcome to Yorkshire and the Amaury Sport Organisation announced last month that the market town will feature in the race during the four day event next spring.

Final details of the route, the day it visits Leyburn and whether the race will start or finish in the town will be revealed on January 17.

Leyburn is joined by seven other host locations – Barnsley, Beverley, Halifax, Huddersfield, Leeds, Redcar and Skipton.

The race takes place from April 30 to May 3, 2020.
